The NFL remains in disarray. They even discovered a way to offend Muslims this week though football. On top of the many ongoing hypocrisies, coverups and sham investigations, there was a report released this week that suggests the incidence rate of CTE in football players on any level is higher than previously believed. Oh, and there was a player accused of sexual assault who was allowed to play a day after his accuser filed a police report about a rape.
On the other hand, there were also Prince Amukamara GETTIN’ SOME jokes.
We have to be vigilant and critical of all the things the NFL gets wrong because there are many and not doing so might as well be enabling them. But that doesn’t mean we can’t also make jokes about Prince Amukamara playing better because he isn’t a virgin anyway. OH, and the Patriots are experiencing their long-overdue downfall (I mean, hopefully they are. Remember, they’re ON TO CINCINNATI now).
Also we should probably stop watching the Thursday night games.
/gets stern warning from Uproxx overlords
Okay, I will continue covering the Thursday night games, but only if I can start getting drunk once one team goes ahead by double digit points. In other words, midway through the first quarter.
Enjoy your Saturday. We got a 4th and Goal installment tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. Here’s the Twitch feed link. I’ll be back here on Sunday. Sadly the Raiders are on bye this week so we must wait a bit longer for the glorious return of Tony Sparano hard-fighting losing football.
